The purpose of these Machine Guarding Best Practices are to provide direction to managers, supervisors, and employees about their responsibilities in the operations and management of machine guarding. Employees must recognize the hazards resulting from the design, location and nature of powered machinery or energy sources. Business owners must also understand how close workers get to the hazards and what they are doing while there.
This Machine Guarding Program is designed to pass Industry Standards, COR, SECOR, Complyworks, Avetta and ISNetworld® RAVS® requirements for Machine Guarding – Canada – Best Practices
